#Plantstodon #Plants #xeriscape #squirrels #gardening We have (had) climbing roses that have been stripped bare by rock squirrels looking for water. Is there a climbing plant that is squirrel resistant? We replaced the annual flowering plants with catmint or baby rita, which the rock squirrels don't bother at all.

The fact that every mainstream news site is now locked behind a paywall is a real boon for the spread of misinformation, because very few right wing sites have paywalls — which means their disinfo and propaganda can spread much more easily. Paywalls are a slow motion disaster.

Criminal protection racket.

STEPHANOPOULOS: Just to sum up. You support #Trump for pres even if he's convicted in classified docs case. You support him for pres even though you believe he contributed to an insurrection. You support him for pres even though you believe he's lying about the last election. You support him for pres even if he's convicted in Manhattan case. I just want to say, the answer to that is yes, correct?

@troy_frizzell @GottaLaff with 161M registered voters, and 71M voted for Trump, that's only 45% of registered voters. Which is high enough to be scary. Only 46% of Americans are registered to vote.

@mike I have some doubts, but they fill the NBA Jazz fairly well, and the city planners apparently want to put a Sofi stadium type entertainment area around a new hockey arena in SLC. Everyone wants a Sofi style area these days. Here's a population density map of the Wasatch Front, that has 80% of Utah's population

When they go beyond the facts, they make very safe assessments and predictions.

They're also obviously trying to keep the tone calm. They even say as much.

@StillIRise1963 last month I looked up how many super yachts exist. No one actually knows but an estimate of 3000 ships for the low end is reasonable (10,000 was the high end). Then I counted how many navy ships in the world, and there are good numbers on that. And it was around 3000 ships for the high end. So there are more super yachts than navy ships in on the seas.

"Most of its expenses are tied to interest on debt, although TMTG also had around a $16 million operating loss for 2023."

Since the total operating losses were $58 million that's $42 million just for interest on debt! Interest. How big is the debt? How was it incurred? This is a social media company using tweaked open source software. They didn't make a new technology, there is no need for a huge investment to get a website running.

Where did they money go?

@futurebird The salaries of the organizations board are huge. The board is composed mostly of Trump family and insiders. From the article: "Former Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) is pulling a salary of $750,000 a year as CEO of Trump Media & Technology Group, the company behind TRUTH Social, according to an SEC filing from last month."
